A year in.
Its been over a year since I last posted anything on here, and thats been because of a of a plethora of reasons. For the first couple months it was excitement and anticipation, the next few was due to a lack of time to work on pretty much anything outside of my classes at RISD, apart from a couple YouTube videos, and then, well, I had a ton of time on my hands but nothing ever inspired me to get back to writing. I like to think that this is something I enjoy doing but the truth is that I'm lazy, and it often just skips my mind. Regardless, it has now been a little over a year that I've actually moved to the United States. For some reason people have a difficult time understanding that I'm here to stay now. The majority of students who come to this country come on Student Visa's sponsored by the university's they're attending, (I-20) and these expire a little under a year after the completion of the students' degree. That, however, isn't the case with me. I'm a lawful permanent resident of the United States, and so unlike every other student who returns to the country from where they came, I'm not. This is my new home now, its been quite the journey from Dubai to Canada to India and now to the United States, and this is where I want to stay. It is, however, turning into quite the challenge, the more I think about it, the more I realize its quite a bit more difficult than I'd thought, especially because of the particular situation I'm in. I came here to move here, and to start college, at the same time! That isn't the most easy thing to do, especially since its quite the challenge to do things the permanent resident way, but still have to explain that my permanent address is in Ohio (or now Kentucky!) but I live in Rhode Island. Either way, after a seemingly endless break of close to nine months when I start again, I'm about to return to RISD, and I'm more than excited to be back and start working. Being aimless is probably one of the worst things a person can feel, it makes you feel worthless and just downright sad. Having a purpose is wonderful, being able to work, and pursue what you want to is the most satisfying feeling ever, and I can't wait to be back at it. I tend to jump rather quickly from point to point in these things, and it doesn't really seem to have very much of a direction other than to just kind of let the internet know whats going on in my life. I'm happy to have finally got my driver's license a month ago and be able to drive, no matter how little. It gives me a ton of freedom to be able to go where I please and enjoy the journey! I'm going to end this particular post right here for today, there isn't too much more I need to say right now.
